Thanks for your test. If you have any question or help, please feel free to ask me.
I'm working to implemnet new generic exynos memoby-bus frequency driver (exynos-busfreq.c).
because this version of patch-set used the 'virtual operating-points'.
So, I'm working to implment this drvier without 'virtual operation-points'.
After finishing the implmentaion, I'll add you to mailing list ac Cc.
